How to Keep Skincare Simple With Multitasking Products

Want to save time, money, and resources? Caley-Beth has the answer: multi-tasking beauty products! Today we will be exploring the benefits of skinimalism and using multi-purpose skincare, plus we offer six ways to use our natural After Shave Balm so you can get started with this simple sustainable beauty hack.

Recently, we talked about sustainable swaps to make in the bathroom. From reusable wipes to plastic free razors, we shared our top tips for going green with daily habits. However, we didn't talk about one of the simplest changes you can make... Using a product in more than one way!

Multi-tasking isn't a new trend, but it is a beauty hack that is gaining more and more momentum as people look for eco friendly alternatives. But why?? Can choosing all-in-one treatments really help your skin that much? What is so special about formulations that can tackle more than one concern??

Benefits of Multitasking Skincare

If you are curious about the benefits of multi-tasking beauty products, you're in luck because today Caley-Beth is spilling all there is to know about skinimalism.

There are a wide range of positives that come from using just a single item:

  • Save time with multitasking skincare

  • Save money with multi-purpose products

  • Save space by simplifying your routine

  • Save your skin by using a multi-functional treatment

  • Save the planet by reducing waste

Multi-purpose products are becoming more and more popular, and for good reason. The trend for skinimalism saves time and reduces the amount of space taken up by all the lotions and potions in your bathroom, and it also helps relieve your financial burden.

Do you know how much money the average woman spends on beauty products each year? It's estimated that a simple daily routine adds up to around $500, with some people spending up to $4,000 with regularly scheduled professional treatments. However, with many trying to find new ways to save as the cost of living increases, it's tempting to cut back on selfcare such as this – but don't fret, Caley-Beth is here to tell you there is another way! You can save money AND still continue to pamper yourself on a daily basis...

By choosing formulations that can effectively tackle a handful of needs, you no longer need to purchase so many individual items. This can help your spending habits and lead to more money for those unexpected moments life throws at you.


Save the planet by reducing waste and recycling.

Plus, multitasking treatments are an eco friendly and sustainable swap. Cutting down on the number of products you rely on means there is less waste. There are fewer bottles and tubes that end up in landfill, you reduce the amount of precious resources being used (like water, botanicals, and fuel for transporting products), and it shows how less truly is more.

That final benefit goes for your skin too. Have you ever tried counting up the total number of ingredients in your routine? Research shows the average woman uses twelve different beauty products each day. That can easily add up to hundreds of chemicals that your skin is exposed to on a regular basis. Not only is this not ideal from a health perspective, but it can also lead to sensitivity and other issues for your skin. Switching to a multi-tasking beauty product can decrease the stress your skin is under and lead to an even healthier complexion.

6 Multitasking Ways to Use After Shave Balm

We have been impressed by the number of ways our customers have been using the Caley-Beth After Shave Balm, and wanted to share a few ideas about how you can practice skinimalism with our natural product.

This sustainable after shave works for all skin types, and lasts ages making it a great choice for a multi-tasking treatment. The zero waste bar is packed full of gentle nourishing ingredients like cocoa butter and calendula oil, making it ideal for relieving irritation while moisturizing the skin.

  1. Shaving: The Caley-Beth After Shave Balm is designed to calm and soothe skin after shaving. It helps heal razor burn and rash, and works to protect freshly shaved legs, underarms, and delicate areas. Just apply after your shower and enjoy the silky smooth results.

  2. Body balm: As our After Shave Balm helps minimize irritation, it is perfect for those struggling with dry and itchy skin. Simply warm up the balm and apply by lightly massaging across any spots that are in need of moisture!

  3. Lip balm: Dry lips causing you stress? Just apply a tiny amount of the Caley-Beth After Shave Balm and let the protective natural ingredients replenish, heal, and soothe those cracks and chapped areas. This skinimalist approach is effective as well as sustainable.

  4. Hand balm: Wind, central heating, and exposure to harsh situations can lead to sore or dry skin on your hands. Calm that inflammation by adding an occlusive layer with our After Shave Balm to lock in moisture and condition your skin. The plastic free bar doesn't contain any petrochemicals so it allows your skin to breath, plus it absorbs quickly and doesn't leave a sticky residue.

  5. Foot balm: Cracked heels are no fun, and with the Caley-Beth After Shave Balm working as a multi-tasker, you won't have to worry about uncomfortable feet any longer. Our sustainable skincare leaves skin feeling softer, smoother, and well protected thanks to the addition of hydrating beeswax.

  6. Face and neck balm: Our natural After Shave Balm does not clog pores and is gentle enough for even sensitive skin, so it's a great fit for all over the body – including your face, chest, and neck! Gently massage with your fingertips after a shower, and let the antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and vitamin rich combination of comfrey and carrot root work its magic.

Don't just take our word for it though. Customers rave about our After Shave Balm, saying their skin is in love with the gentle plastic free treatment. Just look at some of the comments we have received!

I know this is an after-shave balm, but I am now also using this as a regular moisturizing bar post-shower - it's that good! I love the neutral colour, and it smells like cocoa butter/scent-free. My legs, which would get easily dry and irritated post-shaving, are now feeling rich, moisturized, and happy with this balm. I highly recommend it, treat yourself to this small piece of luxury!" -Lee


As a person with sensitive skin, the products in this after balm were incredibly moisturizing on my skin and did not produce any allergic reactions. The product rubs in very well and does not leave a sticky or odd residue/texture. I've even used it for my dry skin elsewhere when not shaving. Would highly recommend this If you're looking for a zero waste, ultra-hydrating and cruelty free product!” -Elle


"I have very dry skin- especially in the winter, and this after-shave balm has been truly a winter-skin saviour! Non-irritating and nourishing- it does exactly what I need and more. Thank you for the balm of my dreams!" -Ayla
